Code Development & Analysis

Awareness Level Course on Residential Fire Sprinkler and the 2010 California Residential Code

On August 27, 2009 the Office of the State Fire Marshal convened representatives from various disciplines to provide information and suggested training recommendations to the State Fire Marshal. The task force developed a communications strategy to educate stakeholders on best practices based on recommendations of the phase I (Water Purveyors) and phase II (Installation) reports. This strategy includes additional resources available for training in the permit, design and installation of residential fire sprinklers. The specific purpose of this training program ("Awareness Level Course" on Residential Fire Sprinklers and the 2010 California Residential Code) is to recognize that the requirements for residential fire sprinklers are designed to be a "life safety system" to prevent flash over and allow for the evacuation or rescue from fire. This is in preparation for a statewide residential fire sprinkler requirement for new construction, scheduled for January 1, 2011 in the 2010 California Residential Code.

Key stakeholders include members of the California Fire Service, Building Industry, Building Officials, Manufactured Housing Association, Public Health Officials, State agencies, National Fire Protection Association, National Fire Sprinkler Association, League of California Cities and design professionals.

Target Audience for Training:
Fire Department/Fire Prevention Personnel (Plan Review, and Inspections) Building Department Personnel (Plan Review, and Inspections) Water Purveyors (Plan Review, and Inspections)Home Builders (BIA Chapters)/Contractors (Plan Preparation, Submittals, and Installation)Contractors: General Building Contractors [B], Fire Protection Contractor [C-16]).

The Office of the State Fire Marshal in conjunction with Cal Chiefs Fire Prevention Officers Section, Building Officials and other stakeholders has tentatively scheduled dates and general locations for the Awareness Level Course. Additional information will follow over the coming weeks and months.
